A kindergarten roundup event is a great way to connect with rising kindergartners and their families. While schools are unable to host in-person events, they can still reach out to families remotely. Consider hosting a video conference or recording a video presentation for families highlighting your kindergarten registration process. During your presentation, also share strategies for creating a home learning environment and let parents know that their engagement in school can boost their child’s:

  • Academic achievement.
  • Attendance.
  • Positive behavior.
  • Motivation for learning.
  • Likelihood of graduation.
  • Likelihood of postsecondary education.

Educators share insights on the effects of COVID-19

EdWeek Research Center is conducting twice-monthly national surveys of K-12 teachers and district leaders to discover how they are addressing challenges affiliated with COVID-19 and remote learning. Here’s what one of their most recent surveys found:

  • Student and teacher morale have declined significantly.
  • Teachers are engaging in instruction and communication; however, equity problems persist.
  • Educators are most concerned that students will fall behind in math.
  • Email and video conferencing are the most common form of teacher-student interaction.
  • About 20% of students are not participating in school. That number is closer to 33% for low-income families.
